Mapping Ireland’s Cultural Diaspora: Invitation to IASIL members to submit suggestions


As part of an upcoming themed edition of the Irish Times Magazine on Ireland’s cultural diaspora, a project to map where in the world Irish writers have set their works is planned. Its intention is to create a searchable online graphic, plotting as many significant works as possible with an accompanying feature exploring why writers set their works abroad, the challenges and opportunities this created and what this might mean for the Irish literary tradition. To this end, we would be grateful for suggestions from IASIL members of any significant works that are set abroad and where specifically they are set (ie city or country/countries). The deadline is October 9th. Please email (Martin Doyle, Assistant Literary Editor, the Irish Times)
